Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: Symptoms of ADHD

The symptoms of ADHD include inattention and/or hyperactivity and impulsivity. These are traits that most children display at some point or another. But with ADHD, which stands for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, or what was referred to as ADD -- attention deficit disorder -- the symptoms are inappropriate for the child\\\'s age.

ADHD is common in children and teens. But adults also can have ADHD. With ADHD in adults, there may be some variation in symptoms. For instance, an adult may experience restlessness instead of hyperactivity. In addition, adults with ADHD consistently have problems with interpersonal relationships and employment.

There are three different types of ADHD, including:

* combined ADHD (the most common type), which involves all of the symptoms
* inattentive ADHD (previously known as ADD), which is marked by impaired attention and concentration
* hyperactive-impulsive ADHD, which is marked by hyperactivity without inattentiveness

For a diagnosis of ADHD, some symptoms that cause impairment must be present before age seven. Also, some impairment from the symptoms must be present in more than one setting. For instance, the person may be impaired at home and school or home and work. Also, there must be clear evidence the symptoms interfere with the person\\\'s ability to function at home, in social environments, or in work environments.


Would this do? LOL.

My brother has ADHD, from what I know, it's a hit and miss with meds.
He's been on countless meds, none work.

i dont think meds work most of the time. its all about willpower and focus. with adhd (wich i got over) i just was like,im fed up with being distracted and forgeting stuff,so i just changed the way i was and turned willpower into focus and here i am now.

Thanks for finding info on ADHD, Purple. <3 You might get to become another Counselor too. Also, guys, it would really help me out if you could look up info on the other Mental Illnesses listed and post them like she did, or post a new topic about a different mental illness with info about it. Any new info is welcome. It would be a lot of help! <3

Yeah, you should post how they can be treated.
I got too lazy to summarize those things, but when I have more time, I'll do it.

I once had to take pills for ADHD back in 3rd grade. I apparently would “distract” the other kids in the class. So, they put me on Ritalin,
I guess I didn’t take to it too well, I wouldn’t eat, I’d puke and be sleepy all the damn time. Head aches and was always very irritable.
I had stopped taken them by the time 4rth grade had started all in all the medication was a bad experience
